Autism Awareness April

April is Autism Awareness Month, sponsored by the anti-autistic group Autism Speaks.  Too often that means the spread of misinformation and stereotypes, and a tone of doom and gloom.

To combat this,  I will be writing a blog post every day in April addressing facts and falsehoods about autism, as well as what it means to parent an autistic child.  I will be linking back to numerous blogs by #actuallyautistic writers because they are the ultimate autism experts.

I’ll be writing about common therapies, less common therapies,  proposed diets, gut issues, parenting narratives,  career possibilities,  and the Judge Rotenberg Center.
